KTÖS announced that the strike will take place from 08:00 to 11:00 in the identified 13 schools as a means to bring attention to the real problems faced by these educational institutions. The union also stated that a press statement will be made in front of Gönyeli Primary School at 11:00 tomorrow.

The schools affected by the strike, as announced by the union, are as follows:

In the Nicosia region: Gönyeli Primary School, Şht. Ertuğrul Primary School, 9 Eylül Primary School, Dr. Suat Günsel State Primary School, Şht. Yalçın Primary School.

In the Famagusta region: Alasya Primary School, Polatpaşa Primary School, Şht. Hüseyin Akil Primary School.

KTÖS Secretary-General Burak Maviş, in a written statement regarding the issue, criticized the reintroduction of changes to the Teachers Law that had provoked their reaction the previous summer. Maviş emphasized that the real agenda of education does not revolve around these changes.

Highlighting the problems of overcrowded classrooms and schools with high student populations, Maviş criticized the government's citizenship and population policies and accused the Ministry of National Education of failing to provide necessary support to schools and teachers.

Maviş stated that KTÖS will be on strike to shed light on the real problems faced by schools, and the press statement to be held in front of Gönyeli Primary School tomorrow will focus on the theme of "The Reality of Overcrowded Classrooms, Issues, and Proposed Solutions."
